DALLAS - Adjustments are the key to any football game and Auburn defensive coordinator Will Muschamp proved that in Monday's AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic in Dallas. The Tigers defeated the Huskers (9-5) 17-14 in a defensive struggle to finish the 2006 season at 11-2. Here's the complete breakdown and...[details]
The Good: He produced in the pro-style Nebraska offense in 2006, displaying the fine hands and good understanding of the passing game. He has very good hands and can extend to catch away from his body. He is good at reading coverage and can find - and settle into - the soft spots in a zone. After the catch, he is a tough runner that fights for extra yardage and will not go down without a fight.
The Bad: Returned to the field for the 2006 season after a serious leg/ankle injury that required two surgeries over recent years. Since he returned to the field, he has not been able to show the same speed that allowed him to be a vertical threat in the passing game. Whether he returns to his former speed and quickness levels remains to be seen. He was never more than an adequate blocker. Strength and technique concerns limited him to a finesse performer.
Outlook: Suffered one of the toughest injuries to witness in recent years. Good late pick or free agent signee with the talent to be a steal for the patient club that gives him time to heal further. Talented receiver with toughness and intangibles to make it, if he proves healthy enough to return to his former quickness.
